Tips to tourists, from Dave Barry:
Miami has a large Spanish-speaking population, so it's good to know some basic conversational Spanish. Here are some expressions that will come in handy:

-- ``¿Donde el heck está mi coche?'' (``Where the heck is my car?'')

-- ``Lo dejé con el ayudante de cámara.'' (``I left it with the valet.'')

-- ``¿Cómo? ¿El no era ayudante de cámara?'' (``What do you mean, he wasn't a valet?'')

-- ``¡Hey! ¿Es ella una hermana de Kardashian?'' (``Hey! Is that a Kardashian sister?'')

-- ``¡Su extremo es del tamaño de un Lounger de Barca!'' (``Her butt is the size of a Barca-Lounger!'')

-- ``¡Ha ha!'' (``Ha ha!'')

-- ``¡Perdoneme! No sabía que era su esposa.'' (``Sorry! I didn't know that was your wife.'')

-- ``Eso es un arma muy grande.'' (``That is a very large gun.'')
